We had a lot of fun celebrating Christmas on Wednesday 18 December, with cheese, bread, chocs, raffle and, of course, drinks at the bar. But it was made extra special with trophy presentations for the winners of our 2019 tournaments - see some of our pics below. Happy New Year all!
Julia Lamb and Margaret Boyer won a hard fought final 6-3 against Reena Cotsford-Dolden and Rosita Herath to take the trophy.
A very close and tense Men's Drawn Doubles competition saw the father and son combination of Stuart and Ryan McTiernan beat Mihai Hutanu and Krystian Ozynski 6-4 to take the trophy.
An exciting Mixed Drawn competition saw the unbeaten pair of Tom Daley and Steph Cochrane go head to head with junior Ryan McTiernan and his partner Julia Lamb. An exciting final saw Ryan and Julia win 6-1 to take the trophy.
Our Under 14 Boys' squad have won the Middlesex league for the third season running.
Squad: Ryan McTiernan, Neal Storhaug, Elliot Pelling, John Rattigan, Aaryan Bid, Henry North, Aodhan Bourke
On Sunday 7 July, we held a glorious Finals Day in which 10 champions were crowned kings and queens of the HWLTC courts on a super sunny day. There were three nail-biting three-setters in the ladies' singles, men's singles and mixed doubles, and, of course, countless glasses of pimm’s.
Well done to all involved in the tennis, bar, food and organising! Take a look at some of our pics below, and view all photos and winners from the day on our Tournaments page.
The pressure's building and the nerves are jangling as we head towards Finals Day. Our finalists have played their matches and are in training for the big day! Come down to the Club on Sunday 7 July to see who are crowned 2019 champions. (And enjoy some grub, have a drink, and hopefully soak up some sunshine while you're at it.)
The Middlesex Summer Tennis League started a couple of weeks ago and all our six teams have played their first matches of the Season.
Having supporters at the matches make all the difference to our teams, so please support them in the matches to come when you can! You can view match dates on our calendar, adult teams competition page and direct on the LTA website.
Best of luck to our teams!!!
The lists for entering the adult club tournaments this summer (May-July) are now posted in the clubhouse. The tournaments are: Men's and Ladies' Singles, Men's and Ladies' Doubles, Mixed Doubles and Veterans' Doubles. As we did last year, we also plan to run a Plate Event for those who are knocked out in the early rounds of the Men's Singles if we have a good amount of competitors.
Who are these tourneys for?
These tournaments are open to all Full and Intermediate (ie student) members. And this year, 5-day members may also take part at a cost of £5 per tournament (note that there is no charge for entering the Veterans' Tournament).
We would love for lots of our full, intermediate or paying 5-day members to enter the tournaments to make the competitions more interesting (however, please do not enter if you know you're going away for longer than 2 weeks during the tournaments or if you cannot make finals day).
What dates do I need to know?
The draw for the tournaments will take place on Friday 3 May (at the same time as the Wimbledon draw) and Finals day will be held on Sunday 7 July, the middle Sunday of Wimbledon.
To view previous champions, take a look on our Adult Competitions page.
